Home devices and appliance provider SharkNinja has announced that it achieved 95% recyclable packaging materials for 98% of products across its line-up.

It is part of the company’s sustainability commitment and goal to switch to complete recyclable materials.

SharkNinja president Mark Barrocas said: “SharkNinja’s commitment to sustainability permeates throughout our company, via both our internal actions and our associate’s personal interests, to ensure we’re doing good for the planet.

“We believe our greatest opportunities for impact and increased investment are in the way we design our products and leverage our supply chain. These opportunities are directly linked to our focus on manically eliminating inefficiencies and our innovation pipeline.

“Ensuring our packaging is easily recyclable is just one of many opportunities we will have to make a meaningful difference in reducing waste and positively impact people’s lives in every home around the world.”

In addition to adopting packaging changes such as 95% post-consumer recycled and recyclable paperboard boxes, the company will use recyclable pulp guards instead of Styrofoam.

It will also use soy-based non-petroleum-based ink on product packaging.

SharkNinja is also planning to replace all plastic-based material with sustainable alternative, including explorations of paper and biodegradable solutions.

The company is also launching a food waste composting scheme and eliminated single-use coffee pods and water bottles as it prepares to head back to its headquarters after the pandemic.
